Sonora first-graders celebrate mom

Sonora Elementary School first-graders honored their moms Friday at the school’s 25th annual Mother’s Day Brunch.

The event was organized by the first-grade students and teachers Leslie Bloom, Jennifer Buteau, Shelly Helm, Lacey Kitchen and Michelle Alberto. 


Students served their moms chili and biscuits and created handmade placemats. The theme was Western and students wore cowboy hats, boots and bandanas.

Moms were given cards, keychains and flowers in painted pots.

Every year during the brunch, a special mom is honored. This year, two women were honored, office secretary Linda Huante and teacher “Coach” Karen Sinclair.

Huante’s mother, Helen Huante, and her daughter, Jolene Meyer, all of Sonora, attended, along with Huante’s grandchildren.

Sinclair’s mother, Betty Lou Sinclair, of Sonora, also attended.

After brunch the first-graders sang several songs, including one called, “Hooray for Mom,” and then did a line-dance.

Moms joined their children for the final song, and learned line dance steps with them.

The children had been preparing for more than a month, teacher Leslie Bloom said.
